New Year’s Greeting (Issue of 2010)

Date of Issue : 1 December 2010

To welcome the year of the Rabbit, a set of two New Year’s Greeting Postage Stamps (Issue of 2010) and a souvenir sheet were issued. The designs find inspiration in modern art styles, such as action painting and pop art. The motif rabbits are depicted using black silhouettes that are adorned with orange and purple paint splatters, which create lively compositions. The backgrounds, which are yellow with random red splatters, cleverly make use of traditional Chinese ink-wash effects. The bright colors symbolize joy and convey high expectations about the Year of the Rabbit

NT$3.5 Stamp : This pair of rabbits conveys the idea of “the treasuring of each other” and symbolizes a year of abundance

NT$13 Stamp : Featuring a rabbit looking off into the distance, this image represents “achieving success in all one’s endeavors.”

NT$12 Souvenir Sheet : This image of a hopping rabbit represents the idea of “surpassing oneself” and “bounding toward a future of personal transcendence.”
